Marina - Marine
Leopoldo Romañac. Was born in 1862, he painted almost to his very last days of his
life. Studied in San Alejandro, under the guidance of Melero
and later decided to continue his education in Italy. His very
own style has been mistaken by impressionism, although it was
not. Even though he was an excellent painter and most of his
work are considered "classics", he suffered from a very bad
taste, especially doing portraits.
His influence was enormous. He was responsible that many of San
Alejandro's students had taken the route to Italy instead of
France. Prints of his extraordinary influence and talent are
painters like Victor Manuel, Fidelio Ponce, etc. His legacy
can be found at many private collections all over the world, as
a rare mastery example of the Cuban painters.
